During the second confinement, a dance class will change the daily lives of many people from Marseille. This film starts from a visceral need to share this experience in order to make people want to exchange again in such a complex period. This short 14-minute documentary was shot over several months and presents the portrait of three people who come to the dance class. How can dance participate in self-affirmation in a society where the image is central? How to reclaim your body in the public space? More than just entertainment. Depending on the context, dance can become a means of militating and regaining power in a pacifist way. Photos © Gabrielle Giraud
